Fog How Fernando Pessoa Saved Portugal

The homeland of Rossana Torres, a resident of Mértola in the Alentejo region and a student of António Reis’s, observed together with Hiroatsu Suzuki, a Japanese man from Kyoto who spent years in Okinawa. What might “postpasteurians” of modern cinema discover? The regularity of the line of the landscape, the mystery of traditional crafts, the simplicity of the world from a time before breakthroughs.

Hiroatsu Suzuki

Self-taught film-maker and visual artist. From an early age, he spent time at the Kyoto Museum and at a cinema club, watching classical films from both Japan and the rest of the world. After various experiences in independent films, he went to live in Okinawa, becoming interested in photography within a rural setting. He set off Europe with the aim of perfecting his visual artistic sense via photography and film watching. Having seen some Portuguese films, he came to Portugal to get to know more about this cinema. He met Rossana and begun filming around Mértola (Alentejo), making their first film.
